RE: AWS-CWI part B question

Don't mixed up between fillet weld size vs width of weld face

See the tolerance at the top-right of the table --> see the "As fitup" column. R for root opening and alpha for groove angle.

Hope this help.

RE: AWS-CWI part B question

Is 5/16" the face width of the fillet in this case?
